The Indians came into the 2020 season confident that they would have a chance to compete for another 11th Region Tournament championship.
And with good reason.
Madison Central won 27 games the previous year and returned a deep, experienced line-up that included lots of pitching and an offense led by a Division I infielder.
It happened more times than I can remember.
And, admittedly, it always annoyed me.
Here's the scenario.
It's the fourth inning of high school baseball game at Don Richardson Field in Richmond.
Madison Central has a big lead and appears to be heading toward a nice, easy, short, mercy-run victory against an overmatched opponent.
Madison Central’s season came to an end with an 8-6 loss to #19 Bowling Green (22-11) on Friday night in the opening round of the KHSAA State Tournament at Whitaker Bank Ballpark. The #5 Indians didn’t trail until the Purples scored five times in the top of the sixth inning. Central (30-8) got a run in the bottom of the sixth, but left the bases loaded.
